Button it Up

Out of my way, people! I've got mysteries to solve! I'm channeling Daphne vibes (from the animated series, Scooby Doo). How cute is this corduroy skirt? Both playful yet innocent, the button front A-line skirt is an on-trend piece to seriously consider.

This skirt is effortlessly cool for those casual hangs, yet preppy enough for the office. To accentuate the structure of the skirt, style it with a form-fitting top. I like to pair it with a mock neck top or turtle neck for a modern spin on a 1970's look (see Ariana Grande). To add to this 1970's femininity, I finished the ensemble with Mary Jane wedges by Jeffrey Campbell.

Rebooting retro styles has been a lot of fun for me. There's something about a classic look that makes a woman feel elegant. 

I'll give brownie points to anyone who can play with textures. For instance, I'm wearing a ribbed turtle neck with a corduroy skirt, wooden suede wedges and a snakeskin clutch. By the way, if you're in the market for chic, day-to-night clutches, Danielle Nicole makes a line of versatile and surprisingly affordable pieces. Find her collections at Nordstrom or Macy's.

These photos were taken yesterday by Marco Alexander, and I've been on a natural high ever since. There's a strong sense of gratitude and inspiration when I'm lucky enough to collaborate with someone who elevates my creativity. Needless to say, I can't wait to shoot with him again! I hope you guys enjoy these photos as much as I do. 

Time for me to start knocking out this week's to-do list. Happy Monday, friends! As always, thanks so much for dropping in!
